A couple of days ago I got the fabulous news from Film Director, Raj Pathak (We are Heroes Films), that we’ve been nominated for an award at the Limelight Film Awards, due to be held on June 9th! It’s a highly prestigious event to be held in the Troxy, a beautiful Art Deco venue in East London.
Not surprisingly we’re nominated in the Horror category – and if we go through and win ‘Film of the Night’ then we’ll get a massive £10,000 production budget – as you can imagine I’m hoping this might go towards making the feature length version! It’s especially good timing as I’ve just submitted the completed script to We Are Heroes.
Even if we don’t win, the nomination alone is exciting and has only been made possible by the combination of such wonderful talents as Crash Taylor, Raj Pathak and N-FX special effects. Not to mention the amazing crew and actors – especially Shelley Draper, who really brought all the emotion of her character off the paper and onto the screen.
Although I’m not able to be there, I’m delighted to promote the sequel to ‘Don’t Go In the Basement’ event. A free night of shorts from Nottingham and the surrounding areas. No theme this time, so it’ll be a proper mixed bag. There will be music video’s, live action shorts, animations and other surprises. You will laugh, you will cry and naturally, given our obsession with horror, there will be some scares along the way.
My zombie short The End will be screening there. (I’m busy writing the prequel so no rest for the wicked!)
Doors at 7.00pm, first film starts at 7.30pm prompt.
